Every month, we run a networked prize draw for participating groups in Spond, in which you, your members and your supporters have the chance to win unbelievable prizes in an online draw.
In each Spond Superdraw, we giveaway a guaranteed minimum of £10,000 in cash to one lucky winner, along with a host of other prizes, ranging from game consoles to gift vouchers.
Spond Superdraw works brilliantly as a fundraiser. Create a campaign for your team in Spond and then we’ll pay you a share of every digital Superdraw entry you sell. It's that simple.
Whether you sell thousands of entries or just a handful, you will always receive your share of the proceeds and, because Spond provides all of the prizes, there's absolutely no risk to your team.
